Drawing Dreams Foundation to Host Online Auction

A Bonnie Cashin self-portrait and an “Eloise” original by Hilary Knight are a few of the finds going under the gavel.

IN THE NAME OF ART: A Bonnie Cashin self-portrait, a glimpse of Bill Blass’ bedroom and an “Eloise” original by Hilary Knight are a few of the unexpected art finds going under the gavel in the Drawing Dreams Foundation’s first online auction. The 60 offerings also include a Peter Max-commissioned portrait, and Jeremiah Goodman’s painting of Diana Vreeland’s living room called “Garden in Hell,” as well as his signed print of the room where Blass slept.

Knight, the illustrator of more than 50 books and the author of nine, is expected at Thursday’s preview at the New York School of Interior Design. Michael Vollbracht, who has also lent a hand to the fund-raiser by donating a collage, will be at the Upper East Side event, where singer-songwriter Cory Chisel will perform.

The Berkeley Calif.-based DDF provides art supplies to hospitalized children and, to date, has had 1,200-plus artists from 71 countries support its mission. The auction will run from Thursday through March 21 via
